The daily devotions on prayer for physical healing begin! (Healing Bible Verses PDF available for free in Introduction)
Sickness and miraculous healing are shrouded in mystery. Not many know how to pray for themselves or a loved one when they are sick. Not only that, most people don't feel confident that God is willing to help them when they pray.
After John W. Nichols (author of GOD is HERE) discovered his daughter had many symptoms of autism, he began reading the Bible with new eyes, trying to understand healing for today. Soon he felt impressed to fast for 7 weeks and pray through Scriptures about healing daily.
Healing is Here: A 49-Day Devotional Journey of Healing Through the Bible, compiles the author's notes and prayers during his fast. It has been organized to apply to anyone who wants to learn about healing at their own pace, with Scriptural support, suggested prayers, and journaling prompts. (There is no requirement to fast while going through this devotional)
John systematically teaches the mysteries he has unlocked over the course of four years of studying and applying Biblical Christian healing. He wrote this devotional with the hope of helping others who are in similar circumstances: those who desperately need healing, aren't sure how to pray, and are wondering if God is willing to help.
The first week covers verses that reveal:
- God's healing nature
- Why people started getting sick
- Our need to connect with Him despite our pain
- How Jesus represented God as He healed
- The importance of asking God for what we need, and the promises in His Word regarding asking
- The depth of provision in Jesus's sacrifice
- Jesus's example of speaking to what needs changed, instead of speaking to God about what needs changed
Over the course of the full 49 days you will discover:
- What is God and Jesus's will regarding healing
- How Jesus fulfilled prophetic verses of healing
- How God's will is accomplished
- What we can learn from the remarkable similarity between salvation and healing

About the Author
He thought one day (when he was old) he might write a book for God. But God thought he should write something sooner, and told John in a prayer session on January 1st, 2016 to write his book. Since then John has written several drafts of books and completed GOD is HERE: Finding God in the Pain of a Broken World, it’s accompanying workbook, and the devotional you are reading now.
In other prayer sessions, God called John to preach His Word, seek His face, and go into the land He would show Him. He and his wife, Trinna, and three children, are following this call to show the love of Christ to the world. This was first exhibited teaching and leading worship in their local church, then by working with people with disabilities, then going to preach at the state prison, loving their neighborhood community, reaching out to women and children enslaved in human trafficking, and now making disciples of Jesus, who make disciples, who make disciples.
When John caught a glimpse of how God saw him, everything changed, and he has since sought to show others this good news. He’s recognized most people, Christian or not, feel unfulfilled and don’t know their life’s purpose. This has led John to help people find their calling and have a life of adventure with God.
